Don't you just hate when you wind up in a store with people who are in a socioeconomic class that is pretty obviously about two levels lower than your own?

“here we go” he mutters to the team pumping oxygen to keep them all alive deep below the earths surface. “it’s a risk, but the extra chrome tabs will be worth it”. he grabs the glistening ram stick and has to make the hardest decision of his life…….one side first, or both sides at the same time. existence itself hangs in the balance and only he can make the call.

Jonny steels himself and says aloud, as record for future generations “we’re going full insertion, both tabs at the same time”. a gasp is heard from the bystanders. they’ve only heard of this technique, it’s never been tried.

the ram shines in the harsh laboratory lights. the pressing begins. the ram moves downwards

well, DMR (which is a digital voice network that supports some SMS type features) is distinct from packet, though you can send messages from one network to another

I can help with both! but we should reroute to the ham thread

neat trivia: in the latter part of the 19th century telegrams became so important that operators had to send at like 30+ words per minute all day long. They started complaining of stiffness, pain and neuropathy in their sending hand, which, as 'shell shock' is to PTSD, was actually what we now know as RSI and just didn't have the term for it.

To alleviate this, the 'semi-automatic key' was designed. Tap it to the left manually for dashes. But for dots, you can hold it to the right, and a spring-action pendulum arm repeatedly makes and breaks a contact at a constant speed! It saved the hands of thousands of operators and also increased send speed across the board. A lot of hams still like these and once you learn what they sound like, it's super easy to pick them out on the air.

i think they screwed up using dudes for the sms though. run those morse code operators against a pair of 13 year old girls and we'd have a real competition
